What is a Galette?
A galette definition is a dish that looks a lot like a traditional pie. Although it looks like a pie with its crispy texture and taste, it typically contains savory ingredients instead of sweet ingredients that you would normally use in a pie. A savory galette may consist of assorted vegetables, including spinach and artichoke. You can prepare it and serve it as an appetizer, lunch, or dinner for the family. However, I’ve enjoyed this for breakfast as well! It is also a great dish to bring to social events, such as potlucks.
Paleo Spinach and Artichoke Galette Recipe
This Paleo Spinach and Artichoke is a paleo and vegetarian-friendly dish containing fresh, wholesome ingredients that taste fantastic together. To keep it compliant for the paleo diet, the crust uses almond flour and arrowroot starch and the creamy “cheese” is made from cashews and mayonnaise.
Ingredients Needed to Prepare the Paleo Spinach and Artichoke Galette
Prepare the Paleo Spinach and Artichoke Galette using the following ingredients:
- Raw cashews: Soak your cashews for about an hour before draining them and using them for that creamy texture.

- Frozen spinach. Thaw the spinach out and drain it before mixing it with other ingredients.
The other ingredients needed for the filling of this vegetable galette include ghee, lemon juice, chopped onions, minced garlic, sea salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. The red pepper flakes are optional, but I love the added spice and flavor it gives.

Can I Use Fresh Spinach Instead of Frozen Spinach?
